Burton had to go into rehab in 1984 for cocaine and alcohol addiction, in the middle of his political career. As opposed to "at the end." That's why he's described as Newsom's "mentor" in the scandal rag that has replaced the Chronicle.

Daly is a "progressive" and that's his base. His prog base may be primarily renters, but merely living in an apartment doesn't make one wish to vote for the likes of Daly. Renters make up the majority of many districts with more sane supervisors, such as mine (Dufty).

As for the Palace, has there been any news on this recently?

Have they perhaps completed all the studies and reports required? If they have, its possible we may see rendering in a few months or less.

This is absolutely stunning....








So then if I read J Church's brief rundown of the proposal correctly, it would leave intact this Garden Court??

Absolutely! This garden is pretty much a San Francisco historical landmark.

I cant even imagine the magnitude of the revolt that would be were they to demolish that beautiful structure.

The Garden Court IS an official San Francisco landmark--the first interior one.

I don't think there is any need to worry about the Garden Court -- it is squarely within the old part of the hotel, as you enter on New Montgomery, not in the addition that would be replaced by the highrise.

Well, there it is. Looks decent for a low quality rendering. Can't wait to see more angles.

^^^The reason it's low quality is that although it appears in the "Structures" supplement of today's Business Times, they so far haven't put it online except in the edition that is available as a PDF document--so I had to take a screen shot of that in order to get something I could post.

I figured it was a screen capture, just want to see it in high res and from other angles, its VERY nice to finally see something.

Interesting tidbit: my mom was arrested in the Palace Hotel in the 60's.

Do you guys realize that with this tower, that climactic scene from the Michael Douglas film "The Game" will finally be possible. That alone is reason enough to build it I think.

Looks good so far, I look forward to more extensive views. I guess its somewhat of a relief to finally have some idea of what this massive project looks like.

Did the hotel go through rough times along with that stretch of Market St. in the 60's?

You can't drop that without expecting us to ask, "For what?"
